Another classic.. Saw it at the drive-in when it hit theaters. I wonder if they're going to give the tv show the blu treatment any time within the next couple of years...

This movie is the best. I can't tell you what wonderful memories I have of this. I was in love with Kelly and secretly was jealous of these actors in this movie like Anthony Michael Hall LOL

About the blu ray-
It's Alive!: Resurrecting Weird Science; Weird Science TV Pilot Episode; and Theatrical Trailer.

No audio commentary?

Default Different versions:(

One of my favorites

HOWEVER! I was gutted to get another copy of this on DVD with the DTS soundtrack a few years back. My original Universal/Image DVD from around 1999 says 'Home Video Version' on the back but I'm sure has an extra couple of lines that are well funny (when they are getting ready to go out and elsewhere?). Also, it plays the Weird Science soundtrack when Kelly Le Brock is heading up the escalators and Downey and his mate follow her out the Mall. 'Pretty Woman' doesn't sound right in comparison!

Can anyone shed any light on these differences? I prefer the Home Video version '99 dvd at the moment!! Even though it has 192K stereo sound!

I've read about a TV version that had extra bits in and others cut out. Really hoping they get the Blu Ray spot on.

This and Real Genius were mainstays when I grew up.
